Modified car owners warned as police stop vehicle with flashing lights

Motorists across Northern Ireland have been warned that making modifications to their vehicles could have serious consequences.

It follows an incident in Co Armagh where police stopped a vehicle which had been fitted with lights that flashed red, green and blue.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “In this instance there was no ulterior motive other than the driver thought it looked good. It would have been extremely serious if it was being used to imitate police.
